Conclusion: On the whole the Panasonic Lumix DMC LS6 performs well. Any low priced digital camera is likely to have one or two areas where it could do better. My concern is that one of the areas where this camera struggles is with shutter response. This can cause a gap between pressing the shutter button and a picture being taken, so you could miss out on photos. As this may be a significant issue for you it is hard for me to recommend this camera.
